BURNLEY boss Sean Dyche believes the success of his current club and that of his former team Watford prove their is more than one way to be a hit in the Premier League.

The Clarets finished seventh last season to qualify for the Europa League with a financial model built on consistency and living within their means.

Dyche has been at Burnley more than six years and the club stuck with him after relegation from the top flight in 2015 and were rewarded with promotion a year later.

While Burnley are in a relegation battle this term, beginning the weekend three points clear of the bottom three, there is no sense of panic around Turf Moor.

Watford, who the Clarets visit on Saturday, have had nine managers since axing Dyche in 2012 and have a high player turnover, but have become an established Premier League side and are currently in seventh place.

And Dyche feels the successes of both clubs proves there is no one size fits all way of running a club.

“I don’t think there are right or wrongs, fans will have their view, media will have their view and owners will have their view as well. At the end of the day everybody wants some form of success,” he said.

“That is what fans wants so most Watford fans will go with it.

“The club is a radical shift from when I was there, absolutely chalk and cheese, from a community club built on the community to now built on a model, but it has worked so I don’t think that there can be any other debate point than to win or be successful in whatever form that success is. For them it is Premier League football and for us it is Premier League football, Europe in this case for us but winning it? Doubt it, highly improbable. In that respect then they have done exactly what they set out to do and probably more than what they set out to do.”

Dyche was the first managerial casualty of the Pozzo family reign at Vicarage Road and admits he didn’t foresee quite the change that has taken place since.

“I think they had a model, when I was there I had to do my due diligence on who was coming in to own the club and they had a model at previous clubs which said they were not going to relent with it.

“They had made it work at other clubs for quite a long period, they had a couple of situations that had been a big challenge and hadn’t quite worked but generally, particularly Udinese of course.

“They had a history of loads of managers and kept shaking the shaker and see which are the golden nuggets stay in there.

There is no right or wrong, the facts are the facts and their model at Watford has worked.”
